Public Health Ontario Infectious Diseases Query: Middlesex-London Health Unit: Case counts and crude rates of reportable diseases by year. Toronto ON: Ontario Agency for Health Protection and Promotion; 2019 May 8 [cited 2019 May 13].

The rate of cryptosporidiosis infections increased from 2005 to 2018 among Middlesex-London residents. At the same time, the rate in Ontario as a whole also increased. Recent increases may be partially due to changes in laboratory methods.

Across the 14-year time period, the local rate was generally lower than the provincial rate; the difference was significant in five of 14 years.
